Campaign 4 (Feb 7, 2015 - Apr 24, 2015)
+target list (csv)

The Campaign 4 target list consists of 15,847 standard long cadence and 122 standard short cadence targets. In addition we have included large pixel masks over dwarf planet (250112) 2002 KY14. Bodies within our own Solar System move relative to the celestial sphere and are covered by long streaks of pixels. We tiled the entire extent of (250112) 2002 KY14 in long cadence.

We approved one Directors Discretionary Target program in Campaign 4 which will observe the 9 very bright stars using circular pixel masks covering the wings of the PSF but not the saturation bleed.
